Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in xpdf :

The Gfx::getPos function in the PDF parser in xpdf before 3.02pl5, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via unknown vectors that trigger an uninitialized pointer dereference (CVE-2010-3702).

The FoFiType1::parse function in fofi/FoFiType1.cc in the PDF parser in xpdf before 3.02pl5, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a PDF file with a crafted Type1 font that contains a negative array index, which bypasses input validation and which triggers memory corruption (CVE-2010-3704).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
